Bio

Visual Artist Lee Paje makes use of unique materials such as oil on Copper painting, sculpture, and video to create works concerned with independence, individuality, and identities. Her visual narratives reveal alternative realities that bring attention to the restraints of gender inequality. She intertwines contemporary lifestyles with the rigidity of past traditions. Once revealed, her compositions are filled with seemingly personal anecdotes yet actually extend to social, cultural, and historical commentary.
